Man Utd target Joao Felix transfer as part of Ralf Rangnick rebuild with £113m star struggling at Atletico Madrid
MANCHESTER UNITED are interested in signing Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid, according to reports.
The Portuguese forward arrived at Atletico in a bumper £113million deal from Benfica back in 2019.
He has struggled to make a big impact since, however, and could soon be on the move.
According to AS, Atletico are willing to give up on the 22-year-old, as he doesn't fit well in Diego Simeone's system.
And Cadena Ser add that Man United are one of four teams to have enquired about him.
Ralf Rangnick is reportedly an admirer of Felix, whose performances at Benfica earned him the prestigious European Golden Boy award in 2019.
If the German is to sign Felix, however, United will have to beat a number of other interested Prem teams.
It's claimed that Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle have also enquired about the forward's availability.

The Toon's offer is reportedly the highest.
But Felix isn't keen on a move to the relegation-threatened Magpies.
Felix has made 88 appearances for Atletico – scoring 20 goals and laying on 11 assists.
Having suffered from ankle and muscle injuries, he has started just three of his side's 16 LaLiga games so far this term.
Overall, he has netted one goal in 12 outings this season.
